    Got our son a Nano for Christmas. He wants to load some music on it. If he uses our computer at home then goes to his at his home and tries to add more music, will it cause a problem because it is 2 computers and 2 iTunes software?? Or will it just erase what he has on here because he won't have the cds installed on his iTunes at home???

    her'es what i would do:

    1. Fill up the nano with music now.
    2. When he brings his nano back to his home, he must first upload all that music onto his computer with an iPod-ripping program such as Senuti (there are tons, google is your friend.)
    3. Once he's added all of those songs to his computer, he can fully sync his iPod with his computer.

    That should work fine - you might have some trouble with protected files (do you use the iTunes store?) but you can verify those files on up to 5 computers with the password :) .
